Empty Dream

By Mbizo CHIRASHA, World BEYOND War, June 11, 2020

I see rains of hatred pounding the face of juba

Socialists and mongers breakfasting human delicacies

Political drunkards lolling feeble voters to night mares and empty dreams

New born democrats buried without traces of memory under the hot hard granite of politics

Souls drooping in misery

When will sunlight cast blessings to these cemeteries?

Green lives decomposing in concrete corridors of history

The feet of history dragged in this grief laden earth.

  2. Great poem brother!!Not pessimistic,but Realistic!!Regrettably,what humans have done to humans,down through the ages,today and tomorrow,is extremely sad,but real…l truly think this is the way it will always be…in “mastering”our little planet,we have changed the environment,the creatures,and fought amongst ourselves…this is what domination requires,especially since power has been constricted to a few;all we can do is help,contribute at the micro level toward good causes,and hope it will add to future efforts.In the end,if it’s not a happy go lucky very large stray meteor that “meets” our planet,it will be us that will end it all…take care,keep writing!!
